The final arrangements are now in place for our return tomorrow and the completion of our very irregular circle. We plan to get back to the starting point in Freckleton between 3:30 and 4:00pm accompanied by a few cycling friends who are coming out to Southport to meet us. We will be departing Southport just after 1pm and passing through Preston on the Guild Wheel route about 3pm if anybody else wants to join us. It would be lovely to see some familiar faces if you have nothing better to do and the sun is shining. Drinks may be consumed in Ponkies on our return but we’re not promising to foot the bill this time, sorry.
Speaking of money; we have tried not to go on and on about our chosen charities for this trip because the fund raising was never the prime motivator for doing it. However, now that it looks pretty certain that we will complete the job tomorrow I think it’s time to stop being polite. If you have enjoyed reading about our experience and you think that what we have done is at least something of an achievement then please could you consider clicking on these links and making a donation, however small. We would really appreciate it and so would the charities.
